Famed Apple Guru Reverses Prediction of 2019 iPhones offering Reverse Wireless Charging

1  JP cover reverse wireless charging


On April 02 Ming-Chi Kuo, the rumor guru predicted that reverse wireless charging was coming to iPhone this year: ""The TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has alleged that the Cupertino-based company will do so again with a feature pioneered by Huawei last year: reverse wireless charging. This feature, dubbed "2-way charging" by Kuo, will be integrated into iPhones to be released this year."


That prediction was walked back by Kuo last nigh tin a note distributed to clients.


CNBC reports that "The planned two-way wireless charging feature, which Kuo and Bloomberg have both reported is in development, would allow people to charge other Apple devices simply by placing them on a charging spot on the back of new iPhones."


Kou reportedly stated that "We have revised our previous predictions,” he wrote. “The new iPhone may not support two-way wireless charging because the charging efficiency may not meet Apple’s requirements." For more, read the full CNBC report. Missing on this big prediction dings Kou's reputation.


Apple was granted a patent for reverse wireless charging earlier this month. Apple filed for this invention back in 2016. Apple's working on reverse wireless charging went far beyond just iPhone-to-iPhone.


Perhaps the complicated nature of this project, being a first to market idea beyond smartphones, will take a little more time to perfect.
